  1. 1. Simulation driven product development of a thick laminated connecting rod

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Hållfasthetslära

    Author : Adrian Tosteberg; [2019]
    Keywords : connecting rod; carbon fiber; composite optimisation; thick laminate modelling; Koenigsegg; Altair; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : This master thesis explores options for efficient simulation in the product development process ofa composite part. It’s method is a result of observation of the development process within twoleading companies, both renowned specialists in their respective domains. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exploration of implicit weights in composite indicators : The case of resilience assessment of countries’ electricity supply

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : David Lindén; [2018]
    Keywords : Composite indicators; Index; Weights; Aggregation; Implicit Weights; Correlation; Energy Security; Resilience; Electricity Supply; Sensitivity Analysis; Nonlinear Regression Analysis; Optimisation; Representativeness;

    Abstract : Composite indicators, also called indices, are widely used synthetic measures for ranking and benchmarking alternatives across complex concepts. The aim of constructing a composite indicator is, among other things, to simplify and condense the information of a plurality of underlying indicators. READ MORE

  3. 3. Spacecraft dynamic analysis and correlation with test results : Shock environment analysis of LISA Pathfinder at VESTA test bed

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Beata Iwona Kunicka; [2017]
    Keywords : FEA FEM; finite element analysis; finite element method; mechanical analysis; structural analysis; dynamic analysis; computational dynamic analysis of structures; shock analysis; shock environment; shock test; shock test campaign; spacecraft dynamic analysis; MSC Nastran; MSC Patran; Dynaworks; Shock Response Spectrum; SRS; space engineering; space science and technology; mechanical engineering; structural engineering; analysis optimisation; analysis parametrisation; mechanical wave propagation; shock propagation; damping; hysteretic damping; viscous damping; structural damping;

    Abstract : The particular study case in this thesis is the shock test performed on the LISA Pathfinder satellite conducted in a laboratory environment on a dedicated test bed: Vega Shock Test Apparatus (VESTA). This test is considered fully representative to study shock levels produced by fairing jettisoning event at Vega Launcher Vehicle, which induces high shock loads towards the satellite. READ MORE

  4. 4. Simulation driven design of timber bolster in fibre composite

    University essay from KTH/Lättkonstruktioner; KTH/Lättkonstruktioner

    Author : Marcus Ribbenstedt; Nick Salvati; [2016]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The primary objective of this thesis is to investigate a simulation and optimisation based methodology using fibre composite materials to lower the weight of timber bolsters. The timber bolsters secure the timber from falling off the truck during loading and transport. READ MORE

  5. 5. Impact simulation of elastic fuel tanks reinforced with exoskeleton for aerospace applications

    University essay from KTH/Mekanik

    Author : Prus Cerzary; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The main subject of the thesis is impact simulation of an elastic fuel tank reinforced with a polymer exoskeleton. Thanks to its light weight and failure resistance, this type of design shows potential to be used in aerospace applications. READ MORE
